I have an older project that uses an AB PLC to hold recipe data. I would like to come up with a method to load/save tag data from/to a USB drive. I realize there is recipe functions within EasyBuilder Pro, but I don’t want to have to do a bunch of PLC work to restructure the way the project currently implements recipes.
